Quick question for you as I'm trying to decide which Timeless baseplate to purchase right now! I saw you mentioned you keep .95 OC for multi-day growth. I'm wondering how to utilize the razor in this situation. For example, do you do a first pass with the .95 OC (which presumably gets rid of the majority of hair and brings you back down to a "non-multiday growth level") and then switch baseplates to a less aggressive one?
Or do you just stick with the .95 OC for all passes of that particular shave?
All good questions!
I never switch plates mid shave although a guy could. If I had the dual comb razor I’d likely go with the OC for pass one and then the SB for the latter two passes.
I rarely go more than a day without a shave. When I do, the .95 OC is just the ticket for my course,thick beard. For daily shaving the .95 SB is the head I use most.
The OC would be too much for me daily.
The Stainless Steel is a more “aggressive” shaver than the Titanium head to head, plate for plate. This is due to the weight. But only by a notch. For example, if I were to rate the razors in terms of efficiency, in order Of the plates I own, on a scale of 1-10, I’d put it this way:
Ti .68 SB - 5
Ti .68 OC - not owned
Ti .95 SB - 7
Ti .95 OC -8
SS.95 SB -8
SS.95 OC - not owned
It’s all subjective and applicable to my face, but gives an example of the differences in efficiency.
